CGiii Comment

This is cinematic...and, so very challenging.

The 'man-hating' is toxic, the [obvious] abuse cannot go unmentioned. For a short film to achieve this level of complexity is bewildering...

It's a difficult film to 'like' - but, there's no getting away from the fact that is bloody good.


No trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

While a disaster hits the country, two women organize their survival in a lost forest.
